Sunday Snippets 12/07-18/07

LifeMarylin9 Comments

You know when your kids/spouse/dog says or does something funny, and you think "I've *totally* gotta blog that" but then it only works out at about 3 lines of a blog post and that's just not enough so you just leave it and forget it ever happened? Well, that's why I thought I'd start Sunday Snippets. You can write down and/or photograph something cute or funny that happens as it happens throughout the week, and every Sunday make it into a post. I figured since we're all friends here in this bloggy community that maybe you might like to find out what others are up to as well!


  1. Follow me if you're not already.

  2. Write your Sunday Snippets post.

  3. Get the button in the right sidebar over there to thwack onto your post.

  4. Add the link to your blog post (note I said POST, not just the blog url!) to the MckLinky at the bottom here.

  5. Read what some of your fellow bloggers have been up to, comment, and enjoy finding new people!

  6. Come back next Sunday and do it all over again. :)

Dean: One of the reasons I fell in love with you was cause you're off your rocker.

Me: WTF??

Dean: I mean, you're not completely there.

Me: ......

That's true love that is! <3 ;)

I got an iPhone 4!!! SQWWEEEEE! It's so pretty and shiny and it takes video in HD and actually decent photos and it even works as a phone!! (as my dad asked to make sure when I was telling him all about it, lol!).

Max has started EATING WITH A SPOOOOON!!!!

He's also started saying "ouch" if he falls over, and... the pièce de résistance... he's started calling Dean "Daddy Deeeean" as clear as a bell!

My lil man is starting to talk! I'm so happy I could cry!

My boy wasn't sure how to talk to me about Jenny, but he was curious about a few things.

Here's the conversation as it happened...

Zack: Mummy, you know your friend who died...

Me: Yeah sweetheart, Jenny. It's really sad isn't it?

Zack: Yes, I wish I could talk to her again. I would tell her I loved her.

*looks up to the sky and says* "Hi Jen, I love ya".

Me: Oh darlin, that's so lovely, I'm sure she heard you. (*tries desperately not to crumble into a heap again*).

Zack: Do you think, now that she's up in heaven, that Jenny could talk to Santa for me?

Me: *huge smile through the tears* I'm sure she will sweetheart, I'm sure she will.

*hugs*

That boy sure knows how to pull at my heart strings. I know Jenny would be smiling at that conversation.

So, what are your Sunday Snippets? I can't wait to read all about them. :)
